    On Saturday night weather reports were that when Irene hit our area the winds would be between 50-65 so I knew we would be OK as we've weathered many storms like that. Rain did come down heavy in sheets and the winds were blowing but mostly it was just a heavy rain storm for us.

    Township had residents in a low lying area evacuate and suggested that anyone who has had flooding in the past to evacuate also. We did lose power on and off around midnight on Sat. but Irene just left some small branches and lots of leaves on the ground in our area. We lost our cable TV, internet and phone for all of Sunday until about 3 am Monday morning. Boy did I miss my contact with the outside world. Just hope everyone else had as few problems as we did.

    Glad to hear you are all OK. Don't we get addicted to all our electronic gadgets? We have 2 laptops and don't leave home without them.
